Base URL ($baseurl)
Base URL wan refer to 2 things:
- The base URL configured for the whole b2evolution instance
- The base URL configured for each Collection
Base URL of b2evolution
The Base URL of your b2evolution installation is the web address you use to access the directory where b2evolution is installed on your web server.
When you type this URL into a web browser you access the default collection/blog that b2evolution is configured to show. Other collections/blogs can be accessed through other URLs (see below).
Some examples of possible base URLs are:
But your base URL depends on what you have entered during the installation or what you have configured in the _basic_config.php file. (The installer generally writes this file for you so you don’t have to).
Base URL of a collection
The Base URL of a collection/blog is the web address you use to access the front page of that collection/blog.
- When you only have one collection/blog on your b2evolution installation, then the base URL of that collection is generally the same as the base URL of b2evolution itself.
- When you have multiple collections/blogs configured on your b2evolution installation (it is the case in the demo installation), then the base URL for each collection can be configured in the URL Settings for that collection.
